The unexpected glass forms—bulbous, sinister and shiny—produced at Portland’s Esque Studio by design duo Andi Kovel and Justin Parker first caught our eye back in 2007.
Renowned for giant “water drop” jugs, skulls created from re-purposed beer bottles and other works that have graced the pages from Architectural Digest to Surface Magazine, the artists focus on continuing to push the limits of the glass medium to come up with pieces that are as surprising as they are aesthetically pleasing.
When we teamed up with some of our favorite brands this year to create limited-edition products, Esque was a no-brainer for the series of collaborations. For Cool Hunting, Esque turned their classic honey bear vase into a beautiful water pipe—a terrific companion to another CH Edition, Good Fight’s herbal Smoking Blend.
Find the honey bear water pipe for $360 in Cool Hunting’s shop along with the full line of our CH Editions.
